This week's singles/tracks/songs column includes the phrases:
- "leaves you feeling as sweaty and boxed in as a man in a pig costume" - Kate Solomon 
- "the aural equivalent of 'shots fired' if they were fired from a nerf gun." - Tom Fenwick
- Gemma Samways asks you to "imagine a world where Radio 1’s Live Lounge isn’t a safe space for Alex Turner to sh** on Girls Aloud’s greatest hits"
- And I mumbled something a long the lines of "I'll probably be the one in the front row mouthing all the words."
Oya festival pick, True Grit, Drake vs Meek Mill, Autre Ne Vuet, Erza Furman, Icarus Line, Traams and "C Beebies gone bad."

Story
Tagline
Not quite as grouchy as Lou Reed.
Introduction
I started 'blogging' about music back in 1998 and then Drowned in Sound followed in October 2000. I've since released records and managed artists and continue to write "critical assessments" every now and then. 
Bragging rights
In. Sound. Drowned.
